Yoga 530-14IKB Sound crackling/distorted

Q: Yoga 530-14IKB Sound crackling/distorted

Hello! Today my new Yoga 530 has arrived and during Windows setup I instantly noticed some distorted/crackling audio from the speakers. First I thought its because no drivers were installed or something like that but after setting up Windows the issue still remained. Upon investaging this issue I noticed its the left speaker that has this issue the right speaker is fine. Would like to ask for some help so I can solve this issue. What I already tried:-Updating Windows 10 and the build version to the latest one-Updating sound drivers from the Lenovo site-Trying a headset with both USB and Headphone jack ports (Headset worked completely fine in both ways no audio issue)-Updating BIOS-Updating Intel 620 HD Driver Here is a link to the audio sample: SpeakerProblem Thanks for the help!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi all,

A couple of weeks ago I bought and downloaded a copy of the "AOS system optimizer" and after using it to 'optimize' my system it instead screwed it up big time... now my sound crackles and stutters when I play all media, online or offline, dvds, youtube, games, etc...

Technical support from them didn't solve my problem, needless to say I've asked for( and gotten) a refund from them, but I'm still stuck with this annoying problem..I've tried the usual methods, such as rolling back drivers, uninstalling all the audio drivers (Nvidia and Realtek) restarting and letting win7 reinstall them, all to no avail

Here is how my audio 'profile' looks like :

A:Crackling and distorted sound in Win 7

The RealTek would be your PC's sound device. NVIDIA is for HDMI only. I don't know what you have for the USB device, but that may be interferring and causing some of the problems.

However, the PC "optimizer" (also know as registry repairers, PC speed up, etc) can do many things that device drivers along cannont fix. Ultimately it may take a complete reinstall to get the PC operating fully and properly.

The first thing, is the USB device, disconnect it temporarily, restart the PC and see if that makes any difference. Also, if you are not using the Acer supplied RealTek sound driver, get that and install it. Generally the PC Vendor's driver is the preferred driver.

I have a fujitsu siemens PC 2,4ghzPentium4 CPU. My sound is built in Realtek AC97 audio plus there is a MPU 40 compatible MIDI device.

I have logitech speakers and subwoofer which appears OK. Would welcome any suggestions. So called "geek" in local pub suggests installing sound card and switching oft builkt in audio set up Any views? Welcome suggestions/advice please. dave
 

A:sound distorted and crackling

That is a pretty old system; at least 3 generations of intel cpu. As to what is causing the problem, it can be a failing audio chip on the board, corrupted drivers, etc.

You can remove all audio drivers and install the driver from realtek and see if that helps.

I assume you have already checked speaker connections and tried the speakers on another system to see if it is a speaker problem or a problem with your system.

As for buying a sound card and disabling the onboard sound, that is fine however I would not be putting too much money into that old of a system. Do not buy one of the expensive creative sound cards; just get a basic one from newegg.

Hello all...
This is my first post on this forum in a desperate attempt to fix my audio problem. I have been reading forums and attempting fixes for days with no avail. I hope someone here can help me :(

For about one week now my sound has been crackling/is very distorted... After reading up on forums many people have said the main cause to this problem was a driver incompatibility issue between windows vista and dell sigmatel cards. I have attempted to try and unplug/replug in the speakers while also checking checking for a possible short along the line and found nothing. I then moved onto uninstalling the sigmatel audio driver from sound drivers as well as the high definition sound codec from my drivers menu and tried to install just about every driver I could find off the internet and nothing has worked. I read on one forum that someone uninstalled and reinstalled their ATI drivers and it worked for them so I tried this as well since I have an ATI graphics card and of course it did not work either. I run an analog out from my graphics card to my TV which I use as my main monitor, when I turn up the speakers on my tv I encounter the same distortion, this is why I'm almost positive its a software issue and not hardware. I tried playing a movie through my TV with a dvd player and it was fine, and I also played music through my speakers with my ipod and no distortion. The only time there is distortion is when Im using my computer. I am extremely frustrated at ... Read more

Hey Guys...

So my Packard Bell Easy Note MX37-S-200 has suddenly started making persistent " Crackling " and " Popping" noises from the moment i boot it. The noise is coming from the speakers and the sound is now distorted. I have very recently got it back from the repair shop after having my AC jack replaced... I would really like to rule everything out before i start pointing fingers at the repair guy

Things i have tried - Disabling sound driver - Noise was still there and laptop just installed it again.

Running avast scan through it - Scan picked up nothing.

Played with the sound setting - Nothing changed noise still there.

Plugged in PC speakers - Noise still coming from laptop but sound came out of the speakers fine.
Would really appreciate any help

A:Crackling noise coming from laptop speakers + sound distorted

My guess is that based on the information provided that the wires for the speakers have either been damaged or crossed in some way where they are touching something they shouldn't causing distortion. My advice would be to take it back and tell them whats going on and make sure to have them fix it for free if they opened it and caused this problem.

Hey, my Yoga 710-14IKB is once again missing sound drivers after a windows update. I've navigated to http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/no/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-710-14ikb/downloads and located the latest audio driver for my laptop, which was released 20th of july in 2016. I've then installed the driver that I downloaded, restarted the PC, and still no audio drivers. I mouseover the sound icon in the Windows 10 task bar, and it says "No Audio Output device is installed". I right click this icon, select "playback devices" where I am greeted by the message "No audio devices are installed". I right click the text and ensure that both disconnected and disabled devices are shown, of which there are none. What do I do now? Edit: I've performed the system update scan on the same page as the driver downloads, and the only two drivers that are recommended that I install are "Connect2" and "Camera driver for Chicony - 10".

Hi,I've got a sound issue on my Yoga 510 - 14ast where whenever a sound is played (windows 10 alerts, sounds from browsers etc.), it plays with an infuriating crackling/popping noise. I have experienced this before and tried multiple things to fix it. I've updated the BIOS, tried updating sound drivers and re-installing Windows (after doing this, the crackling dissapeared for about a week but it's back now). However, in certain applications, there is no crackling (this includes games and a few others). This sound problem happens both while wearing headphones and using the speaker. I hope that somebody can help to sort out this issue.

I've recently noticed that the sound coming through my speakers is heavily distorted and crackly. It's not the speakers themselves; they have been tested. I thought that the port might be loose, but it happens with anything plugged into the front jack as well. The Audio Troubleshooter from Microsoft claims no issues; I have attempted to uninstall and then reinstall the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers, and seen no improvements. I'm at a loss as to what else it could be.

Thanks!

A:Distorted and crackling audio

This can be a frustrating problem to find a solution. I once had the problem with an old Creative sound card and a driver update resolved it. That was the easy solution. The harder diagnosis is with interference. You may have interference coming into your system from elsewhere, or it may be internal or coming from the motherboard itself. You can look at the problems others have had at this link to see how some found it frustrating to diagnose and solve.

I would first try removing possible sources of interference. What other devices do you have connected to the power strip the computer is plugged into? If you have a phone, printer, or scanner plugged into the same power strip, plug them into another strip or a different circuit altogether in your home. You also may try shutting down the system and making certain all internal cards and wires are firmly connected. Over time some things can work themselves loose somewhat especially if you've recently moved the system for any reason.

Hope this helps lead you to an idea that will resolve the problem. Good luck.

On most Dell's the Dell sound drivers need to be used for proper operation. Dell only supports Vista 32 bit and not Vista 64 bit or Windows 7 with drivers on this system. If you have Windows 7, try the Dell SigmaTel drives and see if they work OK. Drivers and Downloads

If this driver is what you have or doesn't work, the only suggestion is to look around for a different SigmaTel (now called IDT) that you can get to work.

Hi, please forgive me if I don't explain much very well, I'm not a very tech savvy person but this problem has driven me mad. I have tried to search around for help but I can't get the right answers, it's always for a different model of ASUS or some different sound device for Windows 7 - I just don't know how to solve this issue.
About a month or so ago, my laptop started producing these very annoying, screeching sounds in one side of my headphones. I thought nothing of it but then later, when I would play a song or a video, whether it was internet based or from my computer, I would hear crackling/popping sounds from my headphones while it played, increasing in intensity as I put the volume up. Even if the volume was done, the popping would be very loud and wouldn't go away unless I muted the speakers. The problem is NOT my headphones because I tried listening with different sets and all had the same problem.

It's not just the jack either I think because when I take the headphones out, the problem persists and the audio is laggy and distorted. Sometimes, the audio will lag so badly I can't make it out and pop so much and sometime it even just goes berserk, sounds like a bad television hum but much louder and like an annoying buzz until it goes back to popping and crackling.

The nasty problem occurs with both speakers and headphones and it's just very annoying. I can't listen to music without hearing this annoying popping, crackling, screeching, buzz noises. And it's not... Read more

Hello, I came here to ask Lenovo Staff for any feedback. Week ago I've bought Yoga 710. After few days of use its front left corner went up, it became unstable on flat surface. Pads aren't the problem and everything is fine if notebook is closed. I left it open with some book to keep it flat over night to see if it helps, it did but only for a while. I've search through this forum if anyone had such issue and Lenovo Support members claimed several times that it should be returned as this is covered by warranty. Sides are stiff and solid but the whole front is pretty much flexible. I could flex it myself but this can damage internal parts which I'd like to avoid. So I took pictures, contacted local Lenovo Support (Poland) about it. Surprisingly they've refused to help by claiming that this is "cosmetic defect". I've asked twice, told them about statements here and I don't blame them, but there's clearly some misunderstanding. Here's the picture of how it looks like. It would be great if someone could clarify why I can't receive warranty service while I read here others did.  I still have week to return it to store but this model (with Kaby Lake) isn't available anymore so they can't replace it for me and yet it's not their fault. I'd like to keep it, stay fair and have my issue resolved. Best Regards, Simon. o/

Hey everyone! Recently I'm thinking about how to use two operating systems on my Yoga without the need of dualboot.After some research I found out that many mainboards aren't able to boot from USB 3.0 or upwards. Since USB2 is way too slow for a decent performance, I'd like to refrain from that as an option. Been checking the UEFI and have only seen the option boot from USB, which does not specify if it's able to boot from USB3.0 (that has often to be differentiated). Now, I don't own a external ssd with USB 3, so I cannot test that myself. So, does the Yoga 510-14IKB support booting from USB 3.0 devices? Kind regards,kazumo P.S.: Does anyone know the technical aspect to why booting from USB 3.0 is not available everywhere? Been trying to figure it out and so far I don't see a reason why, since USB 3.0 has two lanes, one of which is equal to a USB 2.0

Hello,  I have a lenovo yoga 520 14IKB, 120 GB SSD, 8 GB ram and NO HDD. As I recently had Wifi connection issues, I opened the computer to fix that (the cable popped out after a pretty rough plane ride). While in there, I saw that I had a SSD, as stated before. but I also saw that i have a unused space to put in another HDD/SSD. I believe that the SSD used in my system is a m.2 sata SSD (I am not  really sure as I am not really familiar with computer hardware), and it is located directly behind the connector for the 2.5 inch drive bay thing. The question now is wether or not I can simply install an HDD into that bay, and use it alongside the boot SSD to use it to store photos, documents etc. I should probably also mention that in sopace of a harddrive or 2.5 inch ssd, there was a "ciuya hdd dummy brk" in the drive bay. I hope to get quick answers, Thanks.
